Ding Liren missed the recently held Chinese Championships because he had a starting place in the Alekhine Memorial instead.

The current youngest Grandmaster in the world, 13 year-old Wei Yi scored a respectable 4½ points.

The time control was 90 minutes for 40 moves and then 30 minutes to finish, with a 30 second increment from the start.
